Last month, DHS’s Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) released a report outlining its findings and recommendations regarding the Secure Communities Program.  CLINIC shared its concerns that the recommendations do not go far enough to correct the real problems with the program.  On October 18, CLINIC wrote a letter to the HSAC welcoming several of the recommendations proposed by the Task Force.  CLINIC reiterated, however, the concerns expressed in our August letter to the Task Force and called upon HSAC to consider broader reforms.  CLINIC continues its active advocacy role with respect to Secure Communities by meeting with both the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the DHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) as these officers carry out their independent reviews of the Secure Communities program.
